    I really don't understand combining high end graphics, a living world, masterclass character creation with ridiculous gender locking and absolutely 100% immersion breaking action combat.

    It's like this game is conflicted on what it wants to be.

    I would really love a game like this without gender locks and with a Batman/AC/SoM/Mad Max style combat system.  Now that would be my perfect game.
    Yeah, but you are assuming that the inclusion of one thing precludes the other things. Just because they have made a very detailed world doesn't mean that they need to make everything "realistic".

    the gender locking is abstract as it has nothing to do with things being "realistic". If you would look at any character you would see them as they are in the world. The only issue there is how the players feel about it.

    The combat is very stylistic. But look at any super hero movie. Say, the Avengers. The world isn't some far out alien place, it's our regular world. However, all the "heroes" do things that are unrealistic to be sure.

    Asian games are about "style" and over the top art design. I've said it before and I'll say it again, their video game characters, with the large weapons, stylized clothing and hair, seem more like super heroes than "real world combatants".

    This is just them "having fun" with the material just like anyone in the west creating a super hero "anything" would do.
    ... and to me they don't look anything like superheros.  In fact, in BDO they don't even have the stylized Japanimation, large swords, huge eyes/small mouth, razor sharp neon purple hair.  Instead, they look like someone pulled a regular kid off the streets of Seoul, handed them a sword and then they inexplicably started doing dancy sword twirls.

    What I'm saying is that the entire art direction of BDO is hyper realistic.  From realistic looking armor (females excepted of course, but still proportionally realistic), realistically sized weapons to realistically proportioned character models including eyes and mouths.

    The stylistic art form that you are mentioning is nowhere to be found in BDO.  Then you take all of that realism and juxtapose it with super twitchy, jumpy flippy, ping-pong combat and it's like... wait... wut?  What just happened?  Everything looked so real and then... poof, immersion blown.
    yes yes, true, I was just thinking of the over the top combat and then thinking about how in other Asian games there are  things that are "over the top" and not hyper realistic.

    Ohhhh, Pearl Abyss is a French game developer.  All this time I thought they were Korean which would put them in... Asia.  How weird.

    Well I guess that solves the mystery of their strange predilection for Tuxedos, Bunny Rabbit Ears and French Maid costumes in the middle of a Fantasy setting.

    Asian culture can look crazy to us but I'm sure when they see us talk back to our parents and disrespect them they cringe and think we are batshit insane too.

    It's not a weird costume, it has a purpose actually. The costume when worn, gives you bonuses to Processing (part of Crafting) when done near the Warehouse NPC. So you never really see players wearing this out in the world playing, but you do see crafters hanging out near the Warehouse NPC with this on doing their processing. 

    They also have Maid NPCs you can install in your house that can be summoned on a CD out in the game world to send items to your warehouse, AH, etc.

    Both the costume and the NPC are cash shop items.
